close those four vents. >> that process includes micking in hydrates that could block the flow. it may take a day or two to determine if the cap is waiting. they have already waited 47 days now along the gulf coast. jay gray, venice, louisiana. >> this morning on radar we see storms lined up to our north. up in pennsylvania they reach all the way back into the mississippi river valley. they are just training along this line between interstate 70 and interstate 80 out there. and this is where the predominant storm activity will be today. the further south you go, the le lesser the chance for some rain today. but we are in an area that could see very likely at least some scattered storms. so there could be strong ones. there were yesterday. most of it was up near the
pennsylvania line here on tv hill at the airport and downtown. no rain measured. all passed to our north. >> let's look at the current situation outside now. the sun is out. has humid. 73 at the airport. 76 at the iner harbor. humidity is up. barometer is down. 29.76. that is not unusual for all this warmth that we have this morning. and the winds are calm. very summer-like conditions here this morning. we still have a come weeks to go. it happens around 7:28 in the morning on the 21st of june is when we officially get into summerfime. -- summertime. 74 annapolis, 73 easton. in the mid to upper 70's down in sals by and ocean city. york 67. 64 in oakland right now. the dew point temperatures are just about where the air temperatures are. very moist air. but when the due points in the 70's, that's tropical.
that's getting down into like the amazon. annapolis and easton and sals by and ocean -- and slisbury all in the 600's. -- in the 60's. you add that and develop a trigger some place and boom you get thunderstorm activity and unstable air. here you see the heavier clouds lined up to our north reaching right back along i-70 into ohio and all the way back into illinois and back into iowa and even nebraska. these are the really big storms in iowa and illinois moving northeast. kind of lined up along and south of this front. that's where the humidity is most intense, with waves moving along the front. the best chance for severe weather will be out to the west. this warm humid air mass bumping up against the humid air in the great lakes and canada makes
things unstable. our forecast today, a mix of sun and clouds. scattered thunderstorms quite likely, but we'll stress again the scattered nature of it. west to southwest winds at 5 to 10. 87 to 92 the high temperature range. insta- weather futurecast shows this rain activity popping up today, but notice how it looks denser up to the north. tomorrow a cool front. a line of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. once that passes through, less humid air moves into the area, and we become more comfortable. that's the trend. now today, a slight risk of severe weather includes all of maryland. you go further west out in that line where the storms are training, and moderate risk of rain westward. so our forecast, seven days worth 90 today, 89 tomorrow. plenty of humidity. each afternoon, the next scattered storm and shower activity. rain might be more widespread tomorrow than during the day
today. less humid starting monday. temperatures in the 70's to near 80. maybe rain shower activity on wednesday. >> coming up, a major recall linked to mcdonald promotion. the health hazard parents need to know about. >> find out about a new ap on your smart phone that could earn you money and other free stuff. >> plus, you probably have never seen anything like this before. they stagger and have a hard time staying upright. could these birds be drunk?

iowa eastward just lined up west to east, that same thing will redevelop this afternoon and this evening. some of those storms will slip south of the pennsylvania line that affect us here in the baltimore area and parts of at least central maryland. maybe crop up in southern md -- maryland as well. again we have a chance for storm activity welling up. right now it is sunny out, though, and humid. temperatures 76 at the iner harbor. 84% the humidity. barometer down. if will is a breeze today it will be from the west-southwest pumping in lots of this tropical moisture that we have. a sampling of temperatures that we have solidly in the 70's around the chesapeake bay. ocean city is almost 80 now. even 70's in western maryland except for oakland where it is 64 degrees. pleasant out there. the dew point temperature is a real indicator of how much moisture is in the air. when the dew point temperature is in the upper 60's and 70's,

region. we stand a good chance for seeing scattered storms especially from the baltimore area northward. 87 to 92 the high today. if it is not raining, it will be a mix of sun and clouds. slight risk for severe storms in our area. the more moderate risk is out to the midwest, parts of ohio and indiana back toward the mississippi valley. insta- weather futurecast shows the scattered nature of the storms here with the concentration to the north today. cold front comes through tomorrow. so then we'll see another band of showers and thunderstorms moving through tomorrow. once we get into monday and tureksmue midity drops off. ocean city forecast scattered storms today and tomorrow, but basically partly cloudy, warm, humid, 87 the highs most days. 90 and 89 the respective highs today and tomorrow in general in our area for the weekt. storms both days. higher rain chances tomorrow, and then less humid the rest of next week from monday on. and a lot of sun, and maybe a

holding two light weights or two stupe cans or whatever, that gives you resistance. >> that takes balance. >> it does. this leg is bent that i'm sitting on. you want to pull up. this one is a beautiful exercise. the leg i'm standing on is a leg that's getting the work. as i pull up, i'm losing my glute, my hamstreng, the back -- hamstring, the back of my leg. so it does strengthen. if you feel sore, don't be alarmed from that. you did it on purpose. >> show us what you can do here. >> everyone has one, right? it is in the back of my car. so put your foot on it, and you're going to lunge back and you are going to slide forward. >> ooh that's good. >> even if you didn't have these weights in your hands, this leg -- >> right through here.

then it continues to grow. aid ran belt -- adrian beltre. matt weiters having an awful slump. after that strikeout in an 0-17 skid. not a hit this month. frank motta, what's the matter? pretty much everything. orioles absolutely dismantled. the debut of juan samuel. very upbeat after the game. >> i was very relaxed. when we were in office, i was in the dugout. i didn't feel any pressure at all. i was just relacked. and the guys went out and played. >> unfortunately for juan, they did not play very well.
